I had a cystoscopy done on Sept. 12th. Apparently, because I waited 2 years, the ulcer that I have in my bladder was HUGE, but he corterized (sp?) it.
I spent the following 2 weeks bleeding and with frequent ADs. He sent me to the ER for IV antibiotics... No blood in urine when I got to the ER, but doc said there was an infection, it was my choice to be admitted or go home with Microbid... I obviously chose the latter one.
Week later go to my regular MD.. they take a urine sample from my leg bag... comes back positive but resistant to Microbid and ALL oral antibiotics... My Uro tells me that if I want to get rid of the infection, I gotta go in the hospital for a week... NO!
BTW bleeding stopped 2.5 weeks after cysto... ADs come and go at their own will.
Urine DOES stink like infection and I DO drinks lots of water. No fever, chills, nor any other symptoms.
I have a script for another uro test, but have to do it from a fresh new foley... Will do the test, but should I REALLY consider going in the Hosp for a week??????????
No, right? Good! Thanx!
